I am a musician (Horn player, vocalist, keyboardist and guitarist), writer (lyrics, articles, ruminations), imagist (photo, video)...lover of subtlety, natural harmonics and details, in bound volumes, film, music, and even sports (subtlety mostly found in baseball and soccer, but I'll watch football and occasionally basketball for entertainment -- and the Warriors are getting pretty entertaining lately...Tour de France, Tour de France)
Wind, watercourses and the sea...
I would like to think of myself as thoughtful, sensual, spiritual and questing...
I am also the divorced father of two cool kids (14 and 16...I share custody 50%, incl. alternate weekends)…
Still playing music (starting to gig with Conspiracy of Beards). Writing, 'blogging'...More rehearsing, good pieces.
Have recently seen numerous great documentaries: Ike and Tina On the Road 1971-1972 (just wrote a piece on it for tvmix.com), The Source Family (Netflix), and docs on Big Star and George Plimpton (at Roxie). The Hired Hand (Peter Fonda follow up to Easy Rider, with Warren Oates), Her, Blue Jasmine, Searching For Sugarman (Rodriguez is a special being, saw him perform at Slim's a few years ago), Jodorowsky's Dune, All Things Must Pass--nostalgic for the various iconic Tower Records. Timbuktu, Force Maejure.

Enjoying being a Water Snake...
Music, music, music...
Knowing about geography, music, history, baseball, soccer, tour de France... I tend to win trivia contests
